In 2011, Boulder citizens voted to have their city take over the electric utility, joining 1 in 7 Americans served by municipal electric utilities.  The process (which will take 3-5 years) continues.

In April 2013, the city council again voted to move forward, inspired this time by the example of Denton, TX, a municipal utility that already gets 40% of its power from renewable energy.  The presentation to the city council is from Mike Grim, the head of the Denton city utility.
